Hope you started your morning off right - after the shuttle from Bridger Bowl, the race starts with a big climb from Fairy Lake to the start of the first timed stage. This course offers stunning views of the Bridger Range and the Gallatin Valley, but don't take your eyes off the trail for too long. Trail snakes thrive in these high alpine environments, just waiting to snag inattentive riders.The first two stages will take you along the western flank of the Bridgers, and stages 3 and 4 will bring you eastward and down the South Fork of Brackett Creek.
From the finish line, it's an easy roll back to Bridger Canyon Road and from there back to Bridger Bowl. Thanks to Bridger Bowl for providing a base area, and to the Custer Gallatin National Forest for permitting the event.
